make a whole-wheat all-butter pie crust then line a pie plate with it and flute the crust edges.
bake the crust until golden brown and flaky! The best!
tapioca is the ideal thickener for this pie. Look for Instant Tapioca and grind it into a fine powder using a spice grinder.
this is how fine the tapioca should be ground.
cook half of the fresh blueberries into a "jam" then combine with remaining blueberries, tapioca, and shredded apple which adds sweetness, tartness, and pectin to help naturally thicken the filling.
mix everything together until combined.
add filling to pre-baked pie crust.
pinch the sweet oat & nut topping evenly over the crust. This is the only component that contains added sugar—just 1/3 cup added sugar in this entire pie!
bake until golden brown!
let it cool, then serve yourself a fat slice and top it with a scoop of VB ice cream!
